Carhartt Work in Progress (W.I.P. for short) was born out of a desire to keep the Carhartt “brand authentic on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean,” with Carhartt Detroit entrusting Edwin Faeh with a license to produce garments under the W.I.P. moniker. In the years since 1994, Carhartt W.I.P. has grown into a brand of its own, with retailers and flagship stores outside of Europe; from Paris and London to New York and Tokyo, Carhartt W.I.P. is a brand that brings together workwear and streetwear, offering well-made and well-thought product that has endeared it to a rabid following.

With a commitment to good product and organic growth, as well as deep roots in the worlds of music, skateboarding and art, Carhartt W.I.P. has grown into a premier collaborator in recent years, partnering with like-minded brands—even ones with aesthetic differences—to create impactful capsule collections that elevate each seasonal offering. From independent artists and retailers, to revered niche brands and high fashion designers, Edwin Faeh’s franchise has mastered the art of the collaboration, meshing the Carhartt W.I.P. workwear DNA with various partners’ distinct styles. These are some of our favorites.
